Isabelle: Automated generic theorem prover

Isabelle is a highly automated generic theorem prover written in Standard ML. New logics are introduced by specifying their syntax and rules of inference. Proof procedures can be expressed using tactics and tacticals. Isabelle comes with 8 different logics, including LCF, some modal logics, first-order logic, Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory, and higher-order logic. Isabelle-93 is not upwardly compatible with its predecessor, but comes with advice on converting to the new simplifier. The Elle Verification Environment for ML (requires Isabelle-92), the archives of the isabelle-users mailing list, and Martin Coen's Substitutions system are included.
